The Independence Day weekend just got busier at the box office. The teaser of Yamla Pagla Deewana: Phir Se, released on Thursday, announces that the film will be in theatres on August 15. Reema Kagti’s sports drama Gold, starring Akshay Kumar, and Milap Zaveri’s thriller Satyamev Jayate, with John Abraham in the lead, will also be released on that weekend.
This is the third installment of the Yamla Pagla Deewana franchise that stars Dharmendra and his sons Sunny Deol and Bobby Deol. However, the story is unrelated to the first two films: Yama Pagla Deewana (2011) and Yamla Pagla Deewana 2 (2013).
The teaser suggests that the tasks for the Deols are neatly divided: Dharmendra plays the comic role, Sunny Deol is the burly man of action and Bobby Deol is the lover boy. Salman Khan drops by for a cameo.
Directed by Navaniat Singh, Yamla Pagla Deewana: Phir Se also stars Kriti Kharbanda, Asrani, Satish Kaushik and Binnu Dhillon.
